Call for Entries - CineKink NYC/2009

CineKink NYC - "the really alternative film festival" - is seeking films and videos, of any length and genre, that explore and celebrate the wide diversity of sexuality. Dedicated to the recognition and encouragement of sex-positive and kink-friendly depictions in film and television, we're looking to blur some boundaries and will be considering offerings drawn from both Hollywood and beyond, with works ranging from documentary to drama, camp comedy to hot porn, mildly spicy to quite explicit - and everything in between.

CineKink Brings Festival of Kinky Films to Portland [25 Oct 2007|03:39pm]

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

CineKink: PDX makes its brazen appearance November 1-3, 2007, featuring a three-night run of films and videos that explore and celebrate a wide diversity of sexuality.

A touring version of "the really alternative film festival" held annually in New York, the event will be presented by CineKink, an organization dedicated to the recognition and encouragement of sex-positive and kink-friendly depictions in film and television. Works presented at CineKink: PDX will range from documentary to drama, mildly spicy to quite explicit - and everything in between.

Among the CineKink: PDX headliners, first up, on Thursday, November 1 at 7 PM, is "Vice and Consent," a documentary visit with such prominent, long-standing members of the BDSM community as Midori, Jay Wiseman and Cleo Dubois. Then, at 9 PM, "Webcam Girls" is a funny and engaging visit with four outspoken pioneers of the girlcam frontier.

On Friday, November 2 at 7:00 PM, it's "Power Plays," short works that probe, prod and play with the dynamics of sexual power and fantasy, followed at 9:00 PM by "Passion Plays," a collection of erotic, sometimes explicit pieces that dance along the supposed boundary of art, including the banned-in-Australia documentary, "Damon and Hunter." Rounding out the evening will be an 11:00 PM screening of "Pornology New York," a paean to the New York sexual underground, circa 1970-85, that brings together four of its most colorful protagonists.

On Saturday, November 3, at 7:00 PM, the drama "Going Under" traces the relationship of a married psychotherapist and a professional dominatrix he's been frequenting. And the festival wraps everything up at a 9:00 PM with a screening of the "Best of CineKink," a program of award-winning shorts deemed the best of the festival's most recent NYC appearance.

lovecraft film fest [20 Sep 2007|06:42pm]

Just a reminder that the H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival is coming up in a couple weeks....they just got this year's schedule online.

Last year's was a lot of fun; most of my favorite bits were the blocks of short films. I'm volunteering to help out at this year's fest.

CSTS: Only 5 Days Left [17 Jun 2007|11:58pm]

JOSS WHEDON ON EQUALITY NOW:

"There are two ways to fight a battle like ours. One is to whisper in the ear of the masses, try subtlely and gradually to change the gender expectations and mythic structures of our culture. That's me. The other is to step up and confront the thousands of atrocities that are taking place around the world on an immediate, one-by-one basis. That's a great deal harder, and that's Equality Now. It's not about politics; it's about basic human decency."

The Endangered Film Festival [09 Jan 2007|01:19am]

FILMMAKER INVITE: Show Your Short Films!
Filmmakers and friends of filmmakers:

Wendy Jo Downing is reprising 2005's Silver Screen Showcase under the new name "The Endangered Film Festival," and right now she is having an open call invitation for submissions of work.

The "Film Fest" itself is going to be an all-day First Thursday event on February 1st (well, by "all day" I mean from 4:00 to 11:00 or so) on both upstairs screens at the Hollywood Theatre on NE Sandy. There will be free food, free PBR, and as many good short films as she can get her hands on (including the official finished-and-polished premier/release of my short film Amnesia Hotel, god willing).

And like I said, right now she's looking for submissions, so if you have a short film or two or three or have friends who have short films or two or so on, you should email Wendy and ask for more juicy details. My understanding is that the deadline for submissions is January 22nd.

Wendy's not just a good friend of mine but a hell of an organizer of parties and events (and one damn fine producer, above all!), so spread the word and don't be shy!

If you don't have anything to show, at least mark it on your calendars and plan to stop by! I think it's going to be $5 at the door for an "all-day, all-access" pass, and there'll be curated shows, free food (delicious J cafe sandwiches, is the rumor) and free beer, and possibly even music?, so I think that's got to count as $5 well spent...

See you there.

Calling all Browncoats and Firefly fans [09 Jun 2006|10:31am]

electrcspacegrl


The PDX Browncoats need your help. Serenity Now/Equality Now is two weeks away and we need to get the word out in a big way this weekend. We need as many flyer distributers as we can get.

If you'd like to help out, either join our yahoo group, email me, or leave me a comment. Let me know when you're free to hand out flyers. You can also take a stack and put them in record stores, cafes, comic book stores, bookstores, grocery stores, or post them on college campus bulletin boards.

The plan is to distribute them this weekend, but we are also looking for new ideas to get the word out. If you have media contacts or know any local businesses that would be willing to sponser, WE NEED YOU NOW. Please join our group and offer to help out a good cause.

Remember, the key word is BENEFIT. This event will benefit Equality Now, and Serenity fans get the benefit of seeing their movie on the big screen again. Please help us make this event a success.

Read about Serenity Now/Equality Now in the Willamette Week.
